Brutal

#3 Posted by AhmadMetallic (19300 posts) -

did bowie really have so many fucking looks and hairdos in his life ? 

#4 Posted by mordukai (8516 posts) -

Ohh my...

#5 Edited by The_A_Drain (4073 posts) -

Wtf is this? you post all of this yet don't even touch upon the characters who really are modelled after Bowie? Resident Evil Zero for example features a character who intendedly looks like Bowie. 
 
Not to Mention Omikron: The Nomad Sould which features his music. Edit: Ah ok, so you found the weird picture of him in Omikron. That pick of him always freaked me out.

David Bowie's the fucking shit. Great music.

I don't see the Raiden connection, but I get all the others and this is seriously creeping me out.

#8 Posted by Soap (3774 posts) -

I dunno... I can see some of them, but I think a lot of them are coincidental. After all, the dude's been around and had a lot of looks... some of them were bound to sync up to some characters.

I think we need some dates before we declare Bowie the daddy of all game characters.

#10 Posted by Metasin (229 posts) -

Bowie was big into androgeny and a bit of a femme, the Japanese make a lot of androgenous male characters, thats all.

#11 Posted by agent_lost (908 posts) -

well yea it David Bowie

#12 Posted by psyborg0815 (447 posts) -

I think this one looks more like Squall

Gackt = Squall
Gackt = Squall
#13 Posted by addictedtopinescent (3634 posts) -

This is scary

#14 Posted by damswedon (3246 posts) -

there's a reason why they call bowie the chameleon king

#15 Posted by RHCPfan24 (8663 posts) -

Haha this is hilarious. Well, Bowie is The Man Who Sold The World/Ziggy Stardust/Major Tom/Jareth/........

Gackt = Cloud, Squall, Zidane and Tidus, seriously. All of his fashion styles match up to the times that those FF games were made.

Holy shit balls.

AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

#20 Posted by Ossi (1289 posts) -

Those comparisons are strangely accurate O_O

#21 Posted by toowalrus (13405 posts) -

Ha, I never matched Teddie with that album cover. Basically, David Bowie is as close as you will get to living anime.

#22 Posted by gingertastic_10 (4314 posts) -

Word.

#23 Posted by Zeushbien (65 posts) -

The man is a living fashion icon, can't be that surprising that he has made an impact in the video-game world. Even if most of these images are just for the lulz.

#24 Posted by Urmean (609 posts) -

This is FABULOUS

#25 Posted by Linkyshinks (11400 posts) -

Well on the evidence of that his other worldly looks have indeed inspired the character design of many. He has been one of those artists that expiriments with his looks and clothing, and that must make him a good source for inspiration.

#26 Posted by OmegaPirate (5642 posts) -

Haha! Fucking love the thin white duke ^_^

#27 Posted by Ghostiet (5832 posts) -

David Bowie is probably one of the two persons (the other being Lemmy Kilmister) I can think of that is made completely out of win, awesome and joy. Another evidence, phew.

He has had more than that.
#32 Posted by cc23574 (665 posts) -

I....I dont know what to say. 
 
 
Mindblowing? 
Epic? 
Disturbing? 
 
Probably a mix between these three words.
#33 Posted by TwoOneFive (9791 posts) -

I BELIEVE. 

#34 Edited by PureRok (4273 posts) -

One of those wasn't a video game character. And this is hardly "every video game character." Nowhere close.

The Thin White Duke. I love him. 
 
And these were hilariously disturbing.

Wow, I'm gonna speculate you've had this crazzzy visualization in your head for a while.

#40 Posted by Emilio (3581 posts) -

Actually, you meant to say David Bowie inspired most shitty boy-girl characters from Final Fantasy.
 
And yes, all the pictures of him, its his vast power of being able to leap across many areas in entertainment through the years.

#41 Posted by Suicrat (3829 posts) -

The secret truth is almost every single Japanophile I know (male and female, but mostly female) also either currently loves David Bowie, or went through a time in their life when they were obsessed with David Bowie, or both.
 
My point is, David Bowie is a major part of exported Japanese culture. Even though he's British.
 
Don't ask me how that works.
 
 
Man, I love starting forum posts with the phrase "The secret truth is ____________".

That's pretty jokes.

LOL!
 
It's too bad he doesn't put out any albums anymore. There was Reality
in 2004 which I saw the tour.  Towards the end of the tour he had to
have a bypass. After that, he hasn't bothered to produce anymore 
albums. I guess he's unofficially retired. Pity.

Wow, what a funny thread! :D

#45 Posted by tooPrime (350 posts) -

David Bowie is the effing man.  Seriously, 1970 to 1980 David Bowie Discography = GOLD. 

#46 Posted by Apathylad (3234 posts) -

Yeah, this was pretty funny.

#47 Posted by guiseppe (2843 posts) -

Haha, awesome.
#48 Posted by TobyD81 (1299 posts) -

And why not? David Bowie is just that fucking awesome.

#49 Posted by Guided_By_Tigers (8020 posts) -
